Banana Oatmeal Health Cookies
2 cups mashed ripe bananas
4 cups oatmeal
1/2 teaspoon vanilla
2/3 cup chopped peanuts
1/2 cup applesauce cinnamon to taste (about 1/2 to 1 tsp)
Preheat oven to 350 F. Mix all ingredients together in a bowl till
everything is uniformly moist. Drop dough by tablespoonfuls on an
ungreased cookie sheet. The dough will not spread, so flatten it to
desired cookie thickness. Bake for 15 minutes. Eat warm or after
cooling. Store in an airtight container.
These are awesome snacks, and don’t get much healthier. They are
wheat-free, with no added sweetener or butter. For a variation, you
can substitute the nuts with just about anything: raisins, dates, or
if you want to be less healthy maybe some chocolate or carob chips.
